one must take this car to a drivers
school to appreciate the brilliant work
the bmw /M folks did in the suspension
tune. superb handling. the track is the
only place one can sanely extract the
performance this car offers, which is
considerable: i chased down a pair of
itb racers in my run group who were
leaving me for dead on the straights.

better still, the car does not beat you
up day-2-day, offers quite good fuel
economy, is reasonable to insure, and
is drop-dead gorgeous to look at. the
price of admission is high, but in this

Worst Features
